Opera Mobile & Windows Mobile 6.5
Tuesday, March 22, 2011 9:54:02 PM
I use a windows mobile 6.5 phone and I have opera mobile 10 installed. Cool you may say. I say no... Because it is SLOW. Yes it is. Not the fastest browser It loads pages slowly even if I'm using wifi. When you slide the page downwards or upwards you see many checkers covering the screen. And it needs some time to get rid of that damn checkers and show the page itself.
Secondly, it eats a lot of ram even if you can not see the actual amount in task manager. Task manager shows 5-8mb usege but more than 30mb of ram dissappears when opera is on.
So while I was waiting for the newer version, which I saw it was released today, I came up with bad news. No opera mobile 11 for winmo 6.5 They totally ignored it. I understand that v11 comes with that fancy zoom thing that iphone does (and other new features) and winmo 6.5 does not support multitouch. But I'd really like to use v11 without that option!
Anyway, winmo 6.5 seems outdated but there are many many people out there who still use this system.
I wonder if they will remember winmo 6.5
